What is Entertaiment?


A distraction, amusement or recreation. A clown at a birthday party, a Broadway show or stadium rock concert, even your friends fighting over the last potato chip—these are all entertainment. The word comes from the old French entretenement, to hold together or support; it is associated with hospitality and a sense of making guests welcome and happy. Many forms of entertainment hit on themes that the brain was evolved to deeply react to, such as backstabbing and murder.
